Geography
"Geography is the subject which holds the key to our future" - Michael Palin,

Geography is our pupils' gateway into the rest of the world and so it is The Geography Department's aim at Maricourt Catholic High School is to ensure that our pupils appreciate and understand the world in which they live. Our pupils consider how Earth's major processes have resulted in some of the most awe-inspiring landforms and features. This can include looking at the formation of some our planet's most well-known landforms to examining the global significance of world biomes, such as the Amazon Rainforest and the Antarctic Circle. We seek to invoke in our pupils a sense of wonder – we want our young geographers to ask questions and inquire about their planet. Importantly, our curriculum in Geography challenges pupils to consider and evaluate various strategies to manage and protect our planet in an effective and sustainable way. Geography is a multifaceted discipline and at Maricourt Catholic High School we endeavour to provide our pupils every opportunity to become well-rounded and highly skilled Geographers through a curriculum that has human and physical geography at its core.

At GCSE and A Level we have opted to study the Edexcel Geography specification (Edexcel A at GCSE) due to how current and relevant the topics are. This specification enables staff within the department to facilitate our goal of ensuring that our pupils are made more aware of the issues that we are faced with today, but most importantly, are challenged on being able to consider how we address those issues in a sustainable way.

"Geography prepares for the world of work - geographers, with their skills of analysis are highly employable!"
